Misses' pullover tunic or top with banded neckline and sleeve variations, optional tie at waist and knit leggings.
10-22 I made a 10 but it was too big.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, view E
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were okay. I had a difficult time with the neckband. It is definitely the most important and prominent part. There are gathers in 4 areas and the bodice and neck/ front band has to be fitted together.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the set in sleeves. They help to minimize my broad shoulders. I like the loose fit- don't like my clothes tight. My problem with this pattern is that the blouse I made does not fit. So, I took some darts in the neckband which do not show in the picture. And this is now a muslin. Also not sure if the pattern is too cutesy on me. I thought I loved the 2 different fabrics I chose but now I'm not so sure.
Inexpensive cotton knits from Hobby Lobby.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I need to make the neckband much smaller. Also took in the side seams quite a bit. After fitting this garment I thought it was great until I sat down in it! Then the neck hung open. So I guess I will fit my garments both sitting down and standing from now on!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm planning to make it again. I think I like the pattern
